Dairy Free Coffee Ice Cream Recipe


3-4 bananas sliced frozen
1/4 cup espresso (at room temp)
1 tsp honey (can also use sugar)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (I prefer coffee extract if you can find it, but vanilla is easier to find!)


Brew coffee. I made my coffee and sweetened with just a bit of sugar to my liking, as I was worried the ice cream would turn out a bit bitter.

Let it cool.

In a food processor, add the frozen bananas, coffee, and vanilla extract.Blend until smooth and creamy.

Take it back to the freezer for an hour.
